Postby freebrickproductions » Fri Aug 12, 2016 11:14 am

And now for one of the largest updates to ever grace the site, a joint venture between Tommy and I, we have the humongous update that is Update #847, with over 3000 pictures and 50 videos from over 100 crossings from 35 towns in 4 different states!

Totals for the update:
84 new crossings
86 updated crossings
170 total crossings
3113 pictures
63 videos

Also, if you see a non-working video, we know about that. It seems YouTube has gotten rid of their flash-based video player (it's all HTML5 now) and so all of the videos Tommy's added, along with all of the videos imbedded with the YouTube embed code on the forums don't work anymore. IIRC, the code was a plug-in, so we'll have to get a new one that supports the HTML5 video player, so for the meantime, just put a link to the video. We'll also see about getting the videos fixed as well on the webpages, but that should be easier since the embed code that YouTube provides (which I use) supports the HTML5 video player.

Also, as another side note, we have also hit 5000 crossings with this update! We administrators here at Mike's Railroad Crossing Website thank each and everyone of y'all who've contributed pictures to the site over the course of its run!
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Wow!

I thought I had submitted an update to the crossing on Broad St. in Bridgewater MA, but I guess no one got my pictures and info?

If you sent it to Gillson (mlgillson(at)rxrsignals.com or rxrsignals(at)gmail.com, forget which he uses for submissions), then he's been extremely busy lately, and probably hasn't gotten around too it yet. If you want too, you can send me the crossing. Just let me know and I'll PM you my e-mail address.

Also, I'm gonna try to have the commemorative video up later today/this evening.
